Guitar Slim And Other "Guitar" Guys

Friday, December 10 and Sunday, December 12

Crossroads celebrates the December 10th birthday of blues great Guitar Slim. We’ll hear covers of his songs from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Candye Kane, Duke Robillard and Buddy Guy, along with other Guitar guys – another Guitar Slim (Alec Seward), Guitar Pete, and Guitar Shorty (who worked in Guitar Slim’s band) in hour one – and we’ve got a Guitar Slim Special in hour two of the show.

Chris Heim produces and hosts Global Village, a nationally and internationally distributed world music show; the nightly jazz show Night Train, and Crossroads, KMUW’s twice-weekly blues and R&B show. Chris is also a critic and freelance writer whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Utne, Global Rhythm, Dirty Linen, and Option, among others.
